Bromley is a district of south east London England. It is the administrative headquarters of the London Borough of Bromley, and identified as a major metropolitan centre in the London Plan. It is the largest, by area, of all the Boroughs in London and has the highest proportion of green belt, covering approximately half of the land.
Get Planning and Architecture has overseen a number of successful projects in the London borough of Bromley. Our team of experts have worked on a wide range of projects here, and are familiar with the Local Planning Authority.
Bromley Planning & Conservation Areas
Conservation areas are sites of historical or architectural importance. Building and redevelopment can be a more complex process due to more planning regulations and constraints applying within such areas. However our highly trained staff have the expertise to address more challenging planning and design issues. We achieve the aims of our clients both on an aesthetic and functional level whilst adhering to regulations set out by the local planning authority.

Bromley Planning Applications & Appeals
In Bromley there are approximately 75 applications for planning permission and about 8 appeals made per week. If, for any reason, planning permission is refused Get Planning and Architecture is able to liaise with both client and the local planning authority in order to appeal. We have had a high level of success winning such appeals.
Bromley in Greater London is in zone 6 and offers good access into central London. According to an article published in The Telegraph newspaper house price growth has risen in the borough by 63 percent in the period between 2005 and 2015. The average house price is now approximately £443 767. In the year 2015 alone property prices increased by 10 percent and are expected to rise further. However it is still far less costly than buying a similar property in central London. When you take this into consideration, the more readily available school spaces than central London plus the ability to get more for your money it’s not surprising that Bromley is becoming a popular choice for first time buyers, investors and families.
The London Borough of Bromley recently granted planning permission for a new mixed used project spanning the area between Churchill Theatre and Church House Gardens. Named Churchill Gardens the bid-winning design came from architects Stitch Studios. With Bromley’s planning committee choosing Countryside properties as their development partners.
The scheme includes 384 new high quality homes across 8 apartment blocks. Out of these 81 will be affordable rent and 53 shared ownership. The residential blocks will border a new town square and generous pedestrian street.
The planning committee’s vision is to attract high street shoppers into an exciting new community and retail space that links to the wider area. They plan to do this with 990 square metres of high quality retail space offering a variety of shops, bars and restaurants at ground level. Added to this will be 730 square meters of amenity space which will include a new town church and promenade with Churchill Theatre at its heart.
Chief Executive of Partnerships at Countryside, Richard Cherry said “We believe that this scheme will offer an exceptional opportunity to maximise full potential of the location and transform the area. In partnership with Bromley Council we will create an exciting housing offer and deliver new, high-quality commercial and community destinations in Bromley”.
Construction is due to start in Autumn 2019 with a completion date set for Winter 2022.
